Last year was the first installment of my Tween Book Buying Guide for the Holidays. I’m very excited to bring it back again, updated, for this year! You can check out last year’s posts here.
Unfortunately, many tweens and middle schoolers are blank slates when it comes to reading. For the next few weeks I will be posting lists to help you find that perfect book or book gift for the 10-13 year old in your life, whether they are an avid reader or dormant readers. Lists will be categorized according to trends I see in my classroom, so you can count on the fact that the books I recommend will be kid-tested and approved.
Give the tweens in your life the gift of reading. A book is a gift you can open again and again, and it does not have to be an expensive gift. What other gift will take tweens to new places, back in time, or away from their world? For approximately ten dollars, you can do all that for the tweens in your life by wrapping a book and giving it to them for the holidays.
Check back here starting December 1st for the first installment of my Tween Book Buying Guide for the Holidays 2009!
